Snowbird Ski Resort

If the world’s best powder, epic terrain, magnificent views, family-friendly skiing zones, world-class lodging options and a handful of great restaurants sound like an experience you’re dying to have, then the decision to book a Snowbird ski vacation is a no-brainer. Everyone from hardcore, expert skiers to families with varying levels of ability will highly enjoy skiing at Snowbird. Additionally, Snowbird is located just one mile from skier's only Alta ski resort, which is also a world-class experience you don't want to miss.

Ski Snowbird

With the terrain type—beginner at 27 percent, intermediate at 39 percent and expert at 35 percent—divided almost equally into thirds, every skier will find trails perfect for them. Beginners have two designated “learn to ski” areas, one near the base area Snowbird Center, one off of the Baby Thunder Lift, and one just below Mid Gad Lift. Children will absolutely love the Mini Mining Camp located off of the Baby Thunder Lift. Here they’ll learn important balancing skills on the tree trails, and have a blast snaking around the mini camp. Beginner skiers can even enjoy the expansive beauty of Snowbird’s Mineral Basin via the Tram. 

Intermediate skiers have ample options from quick laps on Mid Gad or Gad 2 Lifts, to leg-burning runs through Peruvian Gulch and a meandering trail in Mineral Basin that yields spectacular views. Expert powder skiers will think they died and went to heaven since Snowbird receives 500 inches of prime “lake affect” snow, annually. Extreme skiers will find no shortage of chutes, steeps and powder fields to challenge themselves on. The terrain further down the Hidden Valley ridgeline off of Cirque Traverse offers world-class expert skiing from gladed chutes and steeps between Gad Chutes and Wilbere Chutes, to the quick chutes between Upper Cirque and Lower Cirque. Skier’s right side of Peruvian Gulch allows for leg burning, variable conditions sure to get the heart pumping. Mineral Basin has double black chutes, steeps and cliffs which will challenge even extreme skiers.
